This Friday, November 1, Nintendo will be digitally releasing the new Wii Fit U for the Wii U. It will be available for digital download in the Wii Marketplace. The best part about this download though, is it's completely free!
Between November 1st and January 31st 2014, Nintendo will be allowing Wii U owners to download the full version of Wii Fit U for 30 days. After the 31 days, the game will no longer be active. However, if you purchase the Wii Fit Meter accessory and synch it to your Wii U within the 31 days, then the game will automatically unlock permanently.
The Fit Meter will cost $19.99 and will be available November 1st. The game itself will cost $39.99 once it becomes available in stores December 13th, and for the game and Fit Meter bundle, $59.99. So not only is Nintendo allowing gamers to get the full game early, but allowing you to get a $60 bundle for just $20.
The Fit Meter may not be an accessory that all gamers will care to use, but for those who use the Wii Fit as their own personal home gym, then it will definitely come in handy. More news on the device to come.
The only downside to getting the game for free is you will have to download it, and as all Wii U owners know, it's a bit of a pain to do so. The game is large, so be aware that it will take a long time to download. So be patient, and then you'll get to enjoy this long awaited game!
